In our embroidery, and in life, perspective really is everything. We had quite a bit of rain last night and I have just spent an hour plus in the yard with my pickup stick getting up the limbs, pine cones and other detritus of last evening. When I first set out, I was irritated by the occasional wind through the trees that caused a bit of water to fall on me. After I had walked the entire property and was fully sweated out, the last thing I did was to trim parts of five limbs that hang low over my drive. As I pulled down the largest one, it gave me a delightful spray of water, all over eyeglasses and everything. It was wonderful. I appreciated the coolness and the wetness of it. It was refreshing. It's all in our perspective!

I hear I may have flashes for 10 years. I used to carry ice packs, now I have a sprayer and fan to take along. It has improved my life considerably. I too appreciate a good spray at the right time.

Yes, it certainly is. Don't you wish you wore those same "perspecticles" all day every day?

Fake hug! Hope you are filling your days well. Think about what we might do when we get together in cooler weather. I enjoy driving and could take you somewhere if you like.

The older I get the more important simple things are.
